The remix artists chose one (or more) of the voices and stories which inspired them to respond in sound, and created musical remixes involving also their own recordings, background or personal story. It's a sonic correspondence across continents and cultures, intended to make the voices of Women Artists from Africa heard in "the global village".
All listeners are warmly invited to continue the correspondence by using the Remixes in broadcasts, sound- and radio pieces, or perhaps in a sound track for a film, and so on...
